With just two minutes before the end of the first half against the Los Angeles Lakers, Booker was sprinting back on defense when he pulled up with a strained left hamstring.

This season Booker is averaging 24.5 points, 7.0 assists, and 3.7 rebounds for the Suns, who with the loss Sunday drop to 4-19, worst in the National Basketball Association and tied with Cleveland for the least amount of wins.

If he feels well enough to play Sunday afternoon at the Los Angeles Lakers, he'll share the Staples Center floor with a member of that elite club.

He was coming back to the team after missing Friday's loss to the Orlando Magic with a toe injury.

Booker missed three games earlier in the season after injuring the same hamstring.

Anthony Davis hit 36 points and 19 rebounds as the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Charlotte Hornets 119-109, while the Philadelphia 76ers continued their strong home form with a 103-95 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Phoenix (4-18) has lost four in a row and seven of eight, despite holding a fourth-quarter lead in four of the past six games.

The Suns listed Booker as questionable to return.

"It actually started before that, we'd been talking when I was in Cleveland, he wanted to pick my brain, talk about how he could get better".
